Vincent Laforet presents in this video some camera test footage shots during his first week with the Red Epic M – Serial # 308. The footage was shot in California, from Big Sur to Ft Bragg, back through Mono Lake and Death Valley.

Champions timelapse

Here’s another fantastic timelapse made by Luis Caldevilla and his team from Timelapses.tv
Luis made this timelapse for Telemadrid during the match between Real Madrid and FC Barcelona. They used five DSLR cameras in total: a Canon 1000D , a 400D, two 450D and a 7D. The cameras were installed in different places in the Bernabeu Stadium to get the bests shots.

One of the best advantages to do timelapses with a DSLR camera is that the resolution of the images is much better than a video camera

During a four-day-work Luis and his team shot more than 50.000 photos. Luciano Rodriguez and Carlos Peña were in charge of the motion control timelapses.

MotionTimer

They used the Motiontimer before and during the match.

Details of the Camera

Alberto Castaño did also a few unique aerial shots using an Oktokopter.

Motion Control Timelapses

I found a lot of fantastic timelapses on the web and I thought it would be nice to have some of the bests in just one post. This is a selection of the best timelapses of the web. Most of them use motion control equipment like the Kessler Oracle Control System, the DitoGear OmniSlider, the Dynamic Perception DollyEngine or the Motiontimer. If you would like to propose another timelapse let me know and I’ll add it.
